Texas Ranger Border Shootout

A team of Texas Rangers Recon agents came under attack from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande this morning, according to an Associated Press report.  The U.S. officers were forced to “return fire and injure at least three of the suspects on the other side of the border.”

The officers were patrolling by boat when they encountered some drug-laden cartel boats.  The cartel responded with “heavy fire.”  There is no official word on any U.S. casualties.

This sort of thing actually happens quite often.  The AP notes there have been “at least a dozen incidents of shots being fired from Mexico into Texas” since January of last year.  There’s no need to worry about it, because President Obama says the border is secure.
